Street just changed from two way to one way

Posted by Glassman on 27 May 2011 in English (English)

I was on the way to a meeting downtown taking my usual route. Entering the downtown area my normal route was now one way, going the wrong direction. On the way back I discovered that the street was just converted. Workers were in the process of redoing the signal lights. The lanes had already been repainted.

I made the change to OSM. Certainly faster than any of the commercial maps. However, the street has an entrance to I5 express lanes. These are time dependent. In the morning they lead into the city and out in the afternoon. But I can't find anything on the wiki that tells me how to show the TOD direction.

Since I'm new I'll ask on the newbie mailing list.

I didn't found (yet) how to deal with access restriction that change with time.
There's date or time validity for access restriction and for turn restriction :

But how to deal with reversed highway ?

There is one time-dependent oneway road in Hamburg (the orange one):

Currently, the syntax is:
oneway=yes:0h-4h;yes:12h-24h;-1:4h-12h (-1=reverse direction)

However, I don't know whether any router can deal with this syntax.

Not sure how to do this either. It has never occurred to me as an issue.

Ah, I've tried to deal with this same entrance before, Glassman! It's somehow reassuring that I wasn't overlooking something obvious. The syntax FK270673 describes makes sense to me at first glance and certainly conveys sufficient information to accurately describe the situation.
